Lewandowski: Bannon Can Now Hold GOP 'Accountable at Ballot Box'

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

Steve Bannon could not truly hold establishment Republicans accountable for breaking from President Donald Trump's agenda while in the White House, but that all changes now that he is outside the administration, former Trump campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski said Sunday.

"Holding people accountable from the outside is considerably easier than holding people accountable from the inside," Lewandowski told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "Look, I've always been an outside individual, I've never worked inside the administration, and I can hold people accountable in a different way if I were on the inside.

"I think the same is going to be true with Steve Bannon. That gives him some more freedom to hold those individuals accountable on the Trump agenda."

Bannon's presence at Breitbart News helps hold Republicans who turn away from President Trump's agenda accountable in the 2018 midterm elections.

"Congress has been broken, and the American people chose Donald Trump to come to Washington to do things differently," Lewandowski said. "If those elected officials in Congress and the U.S. Senate can't get on the Trump agenda, there's accountability at the ballot box."

Lewandowski was responding to Bannon's comments Saturday to The Washington Post.

"If the Republican Party on Capitol Hill gets behind the president on his plans and not theirs, it will all be sweetness and light, be one big happy family," Bannon told the Post.
